This is officially my 110th Deviation on DeviantArt, so whoo hoo! I know I've been keeping some of you waiting, so I hope this is satisfactory. Anyway, with all the hype surrounding the Dark Knight, especially with the late Heath Ledger's twisted psycopath of a Joker (complete with messy grunge makeup and straggly hair), I thought it'd be great to do a more "classic" version of the villain, akin to the Joker from "The Man Who Laughs" and "The Killing Joke" (though in no way am I comparing myself to the artists of those breathtaking works) so here it is. Constructive criticism and comments always welcome!

Awesome, Jedd! :tmb:

I always preferred the Classic Joker to the more modern versions.
The expression is great- Grinning, but completley psychotic. :mis:

Love the Jacket, waistcoat et all- great detailing. Love the violet shade you used on the jacket- what pencils do you use, man? :tmb:

Great work!

Thank you so much for the comments, especially to Earthcane! I was trying to achieve that iconic Joker look, so thank you for the affirmation. I use a few colours from Derwent ColourSofts Link (http://www.pencils.co.uk/products/derwent.aspx?sid=12) which I buy by the colour at a not-too-cheap price from an art store. I mainly use the Lakeland (http://www.pencils.co.uk/products/lakeland.aspx?sid=1) colourthins, which are more of childrens' coloured pencils and thus cheaper. I often run out of black, so I use a black Stabilo which I think works pretty okay.

Yeah I practically used Derwent all throughout my Leaving art exams.
Great pencils. :tmb:

As I said, love the jacket- that color of purple is so vibrant. :tmb:
